is utterly dismissing mr. romney. romney's foreign policy mouthpiece was challenged by andrea mitchell to defend his somewhat hawkish posture towards iran. take a listen, dana. >> is governor romney really prepared to go to war with iran right now and open up a regional war? >> so governor romney has not advocated military action and any suggestion that he has by the president or his surrogates is a mischaracterization. >> dana, i'm sorry, so romney doesn't advocate military action, but the president is weak for not advocating military action. how does that one work? >> let me explain it that way, the position romney is taking on any foreign policy issue is he disagrees with president obama regardless of president obama's position on this. afghanistan. he disagrees with it. what would he do differently? >> nothing. >> we don't know. he disagrees with the position on iran, on israel. what would he do differently? nothing, because the united states are at the mercy of events unless he is going to reinstate the neocon advisers. >> 17 of the 24 advised president bush. >> and we saw what th
economic policies. >> craig, let me respond if i can. >> yeah. >> we know two things about mitt romney's policies. one, he wants to reduce taxes for rich. and for instance we think they're going to go up for the middle las. and two, he wants to more or less make medicare a voucher program. both of those proposals, and there is no dispute about those are wildly unpopular. so if this gets into a debate about policies, that i think someone of mitt romney's problems. everybody says oh, romney is just a bad candidate. no. the philosophy that he is putting forward any republican candidate this year would be putting forward. it just happens not to be with the public supports. >> richard knows he is not being sincere in terms of characterizing the governor's policy. >> what policies specifically? >> he is certainly, you know, certainly put forward a plan that is more specific an broader based than just tax breaks for the rich. >> i want to focus, not so much on policy here for a minute. but i do want to continue to focus on the debate here. and richard, i want to play a quick moment that presi
in massachusetts when he was governor, clearly romney's policies benefit the rich. i understand the frustration with the economy and not being as optimistic about the economy and being angry and wanting to blame the president. but the alternative is worse for the middle class when they look at the actual numbers. megyn: politico reports 54% of the total american electorate is the middle class -- usually their vote is split count middle. not this time around. >> maybe they are actually listen together results from massachusetts where he took the state from an expected large deficit to a surplus where he encouraged job growth in the way government should by getting out of the way. the fact is when the president says we are going to put more people to work on infrastructure we know how that translates. we'll borrow money from china and hire people for short-term jobs that don't lead to something that's long term. even middle class voters are saying this does not give us a long-term win. exactly two weeks after four americans were brutally murdered in libya we'll speak with someone who served with
with a president romney and foreign policy and next four years with a president obama foreign colorado. what do you foresee as the difference and where are they similar? >> oh, i think the difference will be significant. normally the republican and the democratic party have really within wibeen within the 40 yaro use a seasonal figure of speech. in the case of this president, we're not. he's way, way over in terms of the policy. governor romney without doubt understands that our country is exceptional. he recognizes the role we've played in the world. he believes the world is a better place if we're a participant in that world, and recognizes that it is not for us to go around the world apologizing and ringing our hands. what's called the arab spring is something happening in the islamic world. it's not arab only, because it's happening in a good many other countries as you know well. it's not spring, but it's summer and fall. it's going to be winter. it is a significant shift on the part of a lot of people in a lot of countries, who are encouraged and see the rise of islamist nonsecular forces in
? fox news anchor refused to dwell on romney's economic policies he would put in place. why wouldn't mitt romney fluent in economics explain his economic policy? because any sensible answer would cause a firestorm in his party. it's obvious with a deficit of more than 7% of gross go mess tick product, any solution to our budgetary problems has to involve spending cuts and tax increases. ronald reagan agreed to tax increases when it hit 4%. george w. bush did. but today's republican parties is organized around the proposition that no matter the circumstances, there must never be a tax increase of any kind. the simpson-bowles proposal calls for 1% for every $3 of spending cut bus every republican presidential candidate during the primaries including romney pledge thad he or she would not accept $10 of spending cuts if that meant $10 of tax increases. so romney could present a serious plan and then h would face a revolt within his own party. so his solution has been to be it lerly vague about how to deal with the actually deaf sit. when pressed for details he said, the devil's in the
on the turmoil in the middle east. also, mitt romney talking aid, trade and more drilling down on foreign policy. we're going to hear what he's saying. and the news many homeowners have been waiting for years to hear. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> a brief break from the verbal sparring, the white house race. president obama stepped back in the global spotlight in new york today addressing the united nations assembly. he spoke at length about the turmoil in the middle east touting diplomacy and coalition building as the solution to the crisis to the region that's been vexing his administration. jessica yellin is traling with the president in new york. jessica, give us an update. what did the president say? >> reporter: wolf, when the president spoke here he had two major audiences, a global audience and a domestic audience. voters listening now to foreign policy issues with a new ear and a new eye after this violence in libya. and the president addressing it all just six weeks out from the election. at the united nations, president obama used the world stage to declare. >>
administration policy. romney is the one with the burden. and so i do think he says, he has to say listen, i haven't been a great candidate but if you elect me there are four organizations i'm going to fix. i am going to fix the tax code -- >> i think romney can remember four. >> it is just too many for people to remember. three, believable. >> okay, do tax code, energy policy and dot political system. or go say hey this guy won't talk about the fiscal cliff, i will cut a deal. i will cut a deal to so we don't go off the fiscal cliff so business can have some confidence that would be the sort of unusual thing i think would be a practical thing that would be believable. >> and so is that right? what romney needs to do is go in and talk about you know name four things. >> well, three, not four. >> three things. >> maybe two or three, no more than three. >> judy, he has to understand this, first of all. the first debate helps the challenger. because for the first time the challenger is stand on the same stage with the president. and the fact that he is not blown away or there is not an enormous
. the president is facing a fierce foreign policy attack from romney right now. is this part of the romney campaign reboot we've been hearing a lot about? >> it absolutely is, zoraida. the bumps in the road quote from "60 minutes" have handed the romney campaign an opportunity to talk about something other than his tax returns or that fund-raising video where he yet sized 47% of americans. this has taken over the economy has the main thrust of the romney campaign message. they're hitting obama hard on this. for example, listen to what paul ryan, romney's running mate, had to say about obama's foreign policy yesterday while campaigning in ohio, zoraida. >> i think the president on too many occasions has deferred our foreign policy leadership to the u.n. security council, to the u.n., this means russia and china get to veto what we want to do. why do we want to give them that kind of clout over our national security interests? >> the goal here is to paint president obama as projecting weakness. ryan yesterday compared the situation in the middle east to tehran in 1979. you know, calling to m
. on campaign policy, governor romney and president obama sparring yesterday, that is how the headlines played. nicholas burns will be coming to us live from boston to take your calls. the former undersecretary of state for political affairs in the bush administration. the speech that we were referring to comes up at 10:30 a.m. eastern time. this will be at the un general assembly. we will stay with several other peaches -- speeches throughout the morning. ronald, good morning. caller: good morning, c-span. lots of republicans call in without looking at all the facts. i do not agree with obama's policies, i am a democrat, but i do agree with the fact that he is making a change, a definite change. mitt romney is not the candidate to be the next president. if he does, this country will turn into what he wants it to turn into, and that would be a business. which is not what this country is. thank you. host: more reaction to the speeches this morning from the editorial page of "the wall street journal." they have this headline, quoting the iranian president -- host: reaction from "the new york tim
, gm is alive and osama bin laden is dead, that's not foreign policy so mitt romney has a grand opportunity to raise his poll numbers by putting obama's feet to the fire. >> there's only one candidate who politicized the death of four american heroes, you know, late at night on september 11th and he was really rebuked by many leading republicans for how, you know, just not ready for prime time he was. i think he showed his lack of depth and experience on foreign policy clearly on september 11th, but i think, you know, all of the calls and points to that this is a coverup is-- it's really laughable in a sense. i don't want to, you know, take away from the seriousness of the loss of american life, but you know, my mom always says, i look for love in all the wrong places. republicans and angela, you and your counterparts are looking for a coverup in all the wrong places. >> i have not said one time it's a coverup. i believe that susan rice was a good foot soldier for the administration, but to even look at the fort hood attack, we said that was work place violence and found out tha
policy economy. lou: that is just about all there is, think. romney is in trouble. >> there is no question that this is a very tight race. some of these polls were they show obama heading in ohio, they are really over sampling democrats and they're also overestimating democratic turnout because they're using -- >> i think everybody will stipulate to that. the deal is, this guy, we can't find paul ryan on the campaign trail. >> i disagree. at that ron is connecting and rain is connecting. they're generating huge crowds. the only reason people say he is not connecting is because the left-wing media is telling you he's of connecting. that's not true. >> i'm disappointed in some of the romney messaging. when he came out in that ad and said he was talking about the middle class and now obamacare is about the middle-class, i thought that was a misstep. it barack obamacare about the middle class would not be raising taxes. i feel like now is the time were you need to really hit obama strong, foreign policy, economic policy, with respect to benghazi. these are all missteps
," mitt romney's rough ride. the fight for ohio. >> you may have noticed that there is an election going on. >> we are going to win ohio. >> the foreign policy debate. >> i was certain and continue to be certain that there are going to be bumps in the road. >> "bumps in the road"? we had an ambassador assassinated. >> rare bipartisan agreement. >> did you guys watched the packers game last night? give me a break. it is time to get the real refs. captioned by the national captioning institute --www.ncicap.org-- >> it has been a rough couple of weeks for mitt romney. the president has opened up leads in battleground states like ohio, wisconsin, florida, colorado. you would have thought that the assassination of an american ambassador in libya, attacks on embassies elsewhere in the middle east, would have offered mitt romney hagel the opportunity to reframe the debate, but he cannot seem to get there. politico began a piece on friday by telling us with the problem is not -- not clint eastwood and the empty chair, or delete 47% video or media bias. politico says it is mitt. judge for yoursel
on the fox news poll suggests that governor romney could turn things around. when asked whether the country should mostly stay on course or whether many policies needed to change, 73% of respondents said change. bret? >> bret: mother jones released another video. it says, shows governor romney in another bad light. 1985 video. mitt romney's discussing bain capital's business strategy that included buying stakes in undervalued companies and then eventually harvesting them at a profit. obama campaign jumped all over that word. what what is the romney camp saying about that? >> the romney campaign came out quickly after that and said this d. "in addition to starting new businesses, mitt romney helped build bain capital turning around broken companies, creating and saving thousands of jobs. the problem today is that president obama hasn't been able to turn around our economy in the same way." we should point out harvesting is a common term in private equity, as in harvesting the investment. a manager i talked to said it's not a bad thing because at that time you have grown a company and created
on the disastrous performance on the economy. having said that, the president's strong point against mitt romney was foreign policy. i think we have seen that argument unravel that this president has been asleep at the switch. he has been incompetent and lied to the american people. he has let others lie. the president had superior knowledge and permitted his subordinates to make false statements. so i think foreign policy will be a key factor because it's the last debate before the election day. >> joe, last word? >> i think he makes a good point. i think the issue will turn on national security begins at home, our economy and job creation. 4 million jobs created after the first year of the obama administration, legitimate issue to say he is making progress. on foreign policy, i think it should be an issue of what we just discussed. but i think it will be laid in the context of the president not only having stopped the war in iraq, gone and violated pakistani air space, which wasn't done before, and getting al qaeda in pakistan, that's bin laden and putting it in the context of 12 embassies att
with the idea that romney actually has a plan. so he has to show a little more leg in terms of policy than he did at the convention. >> his race from the beginning is, i'm not barack obama, he is. >> how is that working? >> but here's the problem, you act as though his policies are actually popular. the vast majority of americans, the polling shows ryan's pick add medicare at front and center, especially in florida -- he has a problem -- >> i'm not arguing that. >> i don't think he's going to be able to avoid. i think you are going to get some substance. i think you need to get some personality. you need to get some spontaneity. i'm not sure either of these two guys is good at spontaneity. if you can fix spontaneity, you've achieved success in politics. >> here's one good piece of news for romney. whatever's happening in sort of the inside washington game, i saw a poll today, i think it was abc news said, 52% of americans expect obama to win. something like 25%, 30% expect romney to win. with the viewers, may not not -- maybe they won't all be watching. >> skewed polls. >> christie is saying,
think it's going to be a domestic policy debate. i'm sure romney's main message is going to be, look, it doesn't have to be this way, okay? we can create jobs, we can deal with the federal deficit, and, yes, we can have a foreign policy where we stabilize these parts of the world if we'll just act in the traditions of bipartisan foreign policy since world war ii. i think that's going to be his basic message. >> in the op-ed there was a phrase used, soft power. i guess what does that mean? what would they have done differently with libya? >> well, here's what should have happened. first, ideally you anticipate the arab spring. if you can't do that, when it happens you set forth a very clear vision of where the region ought to go, in the direction of a constitutional government. you actually get involved in these countries. you learn the elements that want those things. you support them and give them credibility. you identify the elements that don't want those things. you oppose those. you actually use the tools. >> do you think the united states should take a stand in open den dmitri
foreign policy, one that people largely agree with. so if governor mitt romney is suggesting we should start another war, he should say so. >>> tonight, hillary clinton is meeting with netanyahu, representing the president. it is still unclear how much of today's talk is aimed to do something talks have not achieved, get iran to negotiate >> all right, how close is iran to the point of no return? there is a big difference between american intelligence and israel's view, the u.s. feels there is at least a year, and no need to take action quickly. israel wants it to be quicker and for the u.s. to be involved. >>> meanwhile, on the campaign trail, the candidates were shadowing each other in a crucial swing state, this time, virginia, chief correspondent chuck todd has more. >> reporter: good evening, savannah, the presidential campaign, of course is focused on nine states where the polls are close. and every year, one state stands out from the rest, in 2000, it was florida, ohio, more and more, it looks like virginia. and that was where both candidates were today. for the president his 13
the african-american community are supporting mitt romney? >> no, absolutely. there's all sorts of policies that are hostile to blacks, hostile to hispanics, hostile to gays, hostile to women. i mean, the party only seems to love corporations which it thinks are people and rich people. everybody else we don't care about you. didn't he say he didn't care about 47% of the country? >> i believe did he. >> i this i the percentage is a bit low. and once again we see the party is putting the party ahead of the country which we see with the entire obstruction strategy which should be a national scandal. >> professor, you have to repeat those words from that caller to mr. limbaugh and i suppose that's why they want all these illegals into the country. you know, damn right. he obviously doesn't realize this current president has been draconian in pursuit of illegal immigration, has spent more money, there are more border patrols on the ground, and yet somehow the caller says this to mr. limbaugh and his response, damn right. >> well, first of all, martin, you're confusing the matter here. you're dea
of economic policy, the president leads mitt romney 48-39. now, this is what happens in europe when living standard plunge, rioting overnight in spain and a general strike in greece, this is the people's response over there to austerity. we've got another all-star lineup for you, watch out everybody, "varney & company" is about to begin. woman 1: this isn't just another election. we're voting for... the future of our medicare and social security. man 1: i want facts. straight talk. tell me your plan... and what it means for me. woman 2: i'm tired of the negative ads and political spin. that won't help me decide. man 2: i earned my medicare and social security. and i deserve some answers. anncr: where do the candidates stand on issues that... affe seniors today and in the future? find out with the aarp voters' guide at earnedasay.org >> good morning, "varney & company" viewers, today is wednesday, december 26th. here is the big story of the day. a picture of decline and financial hardship. since president obama took office, household income is it down a whopping 8.2%, even if you measure
a more effective version. as we carry on george w. bush's policies. on israel i think some of the romney charges are accurate. the fact is that the president has gratuitously alienated the prime minister of israel on an issue frankly was not relevant, which was settlements. and i don't think, unlike bill clinton, and george w. bush, that this president has the kind of emotional sensitivity that think is required to create some measure of partnership with the israelis even though netanyahu is a difficult guy. on syria, look, let's be clear. we're coming off the two longest wars in american history. the last thing we need is another military adventure that isn't thought through very clearly. on iran, no matter who is president we have got big trouble coming. israelis rightly need to figure out a way to prevent iran from enriching uranium. the question is, whether or not you can do that short of war? and right now, neither barack obama nor mitt romney, nor benjamin netanyahu have answers to that. so --. >> brought us through some very important regions in the middle east and it is such a bi
on the economy, the corner stone of romney's campaign and those voters also say they believe romney's policies will favor the rich. >> there's been a consistent line of afact from the president. >> i do not believe that another round of tax cuts for millionaires are going to bring good jobs back to ohio. >> reporter: it features promptly in mr. obama's television ads which has saturated the air waves. the president and his team are out spending the romney team on television though both campaigns have spent more here than in any other battleground state. the president and groups supporting him have spent $49.9 million in ohio while romney and outside groups have spent $42.5 million. the romney camp says it's not bothered by poll numbers say they have confidence by their own internal polling and believe they are making inroads in ohio and message of lower spending and debt. >> the status quo has not worked. we can't afford four more years of barack obama. we won't have four more years of barack obama. >> now if you had any doubt about the importance of ohio look at the campaign schedule today. t
. >> this is -- this is billed as a domestic policy debate, but -- and there are so many ways this is also domestic policy, these wars. first of all, veterans benefits and the fact that the romney camp views this as part of the defense sequester that somehow is protected it's not pro tented as you were pointed out last night. >> there is -- i sort of felt like because the romney campaign has been so absent on issues of natural security, substantive issues of national security beyond just name calling i feel like the campaign should be encouraged now that they have tried to talk about veterans issues. there are huge issues with the disability claims but also other elements of the v.a.'s performance in terms of this current generation of veterans and older generations of vets and romney in trying to go there, in virginia this week, showed he didn't even understand the issue he was trying to make political hay out of. the problem of suicides among veterans and says a solution is he won't cut military spending in the sequester. you know, i don't think he knows what the relationship of the v.a. funding is to t
clarified. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and ryan supported as bill clinton said all they're suggesting when he's asked about this and he's the best, he made the comment, he said, what they're proposing is bush economic policies on steroids. >> now, the president also visited here in nevada, one of his local campaign offices with volunteers. he said the sessions have been so intense that it feels like homework to him, almost like cramming for a final exam. >> bill: republicans are not giving up. six electoral votes. everyone is important, right, ed? >> that's right. some of mitt romney's key surrogate have been here shadowing the president while he does debate prep. yesterday it was ann romney. i saw matt romney was appearing with marco rubio, one of the rising stars from florida. he's here to help turn out the hispanic vote in navy nevada. i sat down with him for an exclusive one on one. he said republicans should calm down about the polls. he believes that mitt romney's going to have a strong debate and he said the message should be very simple. take a listen. >
to say the president's policies have failed or does romney need to layout in terms that americans can understand what he would do to bring this debt and deficit down? >> i think you've hit the nail on the head, he must spell out what he's going to do about this huge problem. in my opinion, what he must do is spell out how he will grow america's economy. we must grow at at least a 4% rate. if we can do that we raise the level of employment, we raise more money in taxes, we cut the deficit and if we have a long-term plan to deal with our spending, and i stress long term, that is an answer to our problems. essentially mr. romney has to tell the world how will he grow america's economy compared to the miserable rate of growth that we've had for the last three and a half years. >> reporter: it's going to be an interesting debate tomorrow night. thank you so much. the president and governor romney may be taking time off the campaign trail today for debate practice but the vice presidental candidates are not. vice president joe biden spoke to voters in charlotte, north carolina a short time
not just on what romney says are ineffectual policies like the president's healthcare law and stimulus packages, but the cost of those policies as compared to romney's own perscriptions that call for smaller less expensive government. for the president what he's going to try to do is say look, maybe things aren't so great but it is partly the fault of george w. bush and the republicans who were in office prior to the democrats taking control in 2009, so we need time to fix it, and by the way, the president will also say that he wants to increase taxes on people like mitt romney to help pay down some of that debt. >> reporter: we just put of that graphic there showing the $16 trillion of debt and there are so many digits it almost doesn't fit on the tv screen across the screen there, as you can see. but haven't americans in some way become number to astronomical numbers? how serious is this in. >> they have become number. is it the new normal this massive spilling of red ink but it raises three problems which i don't think the nation has got even to grips with yet. number one our econom
